Frontend Fem Fest! Weeeee!

I had a great time a few weeks ago at Frontend Fem Fest—a day-long event of sharing and chatting about techy things people are excited about. I talked a bit about CSS animations in theory and practice and was able to hang out for a good chunk of the lineup including Designing Web Apps, Open Source Libraries, Git/GitHub, Bare Conductive Board, Grids, and AfterEffects.

I loved seeing the Trash Music Box! Gretchen Larson ( helped put together with the Bare Conductive Board. It had me itching to return to some old sketches to rethink and revive a couple of ideas.

Thanks to all of the organizations and people who came together to put Frontend Fem Fest together—especially Gretchen, who gave me the nudge I needed to come in. 

Now, I leave you with this:
